Quite entertaining. And a good score by Elmer Bernstein. But who removed the Wolpert "spiral" logo at the end of the closing credits? That's just criminal.

This is a quite entertaining retrospective on the movies.

I downloaded the 223MB file. It looked and played fine.

Thank you to the uploader of this fantastic film. What a treat for classic film buffs, full of scenes from many great movies as well as glimpses of stars off-screen too, and all of it so well presented. A real tribute to the stars and movie makers of the time. Fascinating and highly recommended!
